Posted by: | Comments (5)

Rangers defenseman John Moore has been suspended five games for his hit on Erik Haula on Monday night. Moore delivered a direct hit to the head of Haula, and is a repeat offender. Moore will be eligible to return on 11/11 against Pittsburgh.

Per Pat Leonard, John Moore will have an in-person hearing Per Bob McKenzie, Moore will have a phone hearing with the Department of Player Safety, following his hit on Eric Haula last night. Moore is considered a repeat offender, as he laid a late hit on Dale Weise in the Easter Conference Finals last year. An in-person hearing carries a minimum suspension of five games. A phone hearing means the suspension will b e five games or less.

Chris Kreider will not receive any supplemental discipline, per McKenzie.

Update: McKenzie is noting that Moore’s hearing may be in-person after all.

Update 2: The NHL has confirmed this is an in-person hearing.

The NHL has reduced Dan Carcillo’s suspension from ten games to six games, following a hearing with Gary Bettman on Friday. Carcillo was originally suspended ten games for abuse of officials. Carcillo has already served three games of his suspension, and would be available for Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals.

John Moore suspended two games

Posted by: | Comments (18)

As expected, John Moore was suspended two games for his high hit on Dale Weise in Game Five. The ruling was that the hit was high, not that it was late. The elbowing call made during the game was obviously wrong (roughing would have been the better call), but the hit itself is almost a carbon copy of the Brandon Prust hit on Derek Stepan. The suspension was expected. Raphael Diaz will likely play in Moore’s spot.

Dan Carcillo appeals suspension

Posted by: | Comments (4)

In unsurprising news, Dan Carcillo has appealed his ten game suspension for abuse of officials. Carcillo’s appeal will be heard on Friday by Gary Bettman, per Larry Brooks.

It’s pretty cut and dry in the rulebook about the ten game suspension, so I don’t expect anything to be overturned. Carcillo’s reputation is working against him here, even if it is obvious he was trying to get away from the linesman, and not abuse him.

John Moore to have hearing with NHL

Posted by: | Comments (30)

As expected, John Moore will have a hearing with the NHL for his hit to Dale Weise in the third period. Moore’s hit was almost identical to the Brandon Prust hit on Derek Stepan, but it did not result in an injury to Weise. If Prust got two games, I expect Moore to get the same or less. If he gets more, then there needs to be an investigation into the decision-making process. Here’s the hit:

Dan Carcillo (likely) suspended 10 games

Posted by: | Comments (3)

Update: Sorry, I thought this was confirmed. It has not been confirmed yet, but it is what is expected.

In no surprising news, forward Dan Carcillo has been suspended ten games for abuse of officials following his tirade in the first period of last night’s loss. Carcillo repeatedly bumped the official trying to get loose from him during an altercation. Carcillo appeared to give a few forearm shivers and put the official in danger. This suspension was coming, and we all knew it.

Carcillo was likely coming out of the lineup anyway when Derick Brassard returns anyway. However, this means that the Rangers are down to J.T. Miller and/or Jesper Fast for injury replacements.

Posted by: | Comments (15)

Henrik Lundqvist was fined $5,000 for spraying Sidney Crosby with his water bottle after he speared Dominic Moore in the onions. The incident came at the end of the second period in Sunday’s 3-1 victory that forced a Game Seven in Pittsburgh. Crosby was not fined for his spear of Moore, nor was he fined for his slew foot of Dan Girardi.

No supplementary discipline for Kreider

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Per Larry Brooks, the NHL Department of Player Safety will not pursue supplementary discipline on winger Chris Kreider for his hit on Fedor Tyutin last night. As noted in the goal breakdown, Kreider definitely slowed before hitting Tyutin, did not hit him in the numbers, and appeared to push him more than anything. The hit was in that danger area, but it’s more a testament to Kreider’s strength than it is a dirty hit.

Also Tyutin wasn’t seriously injured on the play, which plays a role in these things.

Per Larry Brooks, there will be no hearing for Rick Nash for his hit on Tomas Kopecky from last night (video below). The reason that the league gave is that initial contact was at Kopecky’s back, not his head. Honestly, this is a huge break for the Rangers. Nash should have been suspended.
